Northwestern Prevention Collaborative - Free Recovery Ally Training

Tuesday, November 9, 2021

Northwestern Prevention Collaborative invites Shenandoah Valley residents to join Rev. Jan M. Brown, MA, CPRSS and Tom Bannard, MBA, CADC, for a free, virtual Recovery Ally Training.

Recovery Ally Programs are trainings that are designed to increase a community's recovery capital, decrease stigma and grow intervention skills.  This training is an interactive, three-hour online training, originally developed at Virginia Commonwealth University to train faculty and staff to become Recovery Allies.  Individual modules include: Basic Science; What Does an Ally Do?; Racial Justice and Recovery; Philosophies of Care & Pathways to Recovery; Families; and Language. It provides a great starting point to supporting people struggling with substance use disorders.  

This online training for the residents of Page, Shenandoah, Warren, Frederick, and Clarke counties and the city of Winchester will be offered November 9th from 9 am to 12 noon, or again November 10th from 6 pm to 9 pm. 

Audience: All are welcome.  This training is a very helpful primer as a family member, lay person, friend, employer, health care provider etc.  For people with limited exposure to treatment or recovery, it can provide some great starting points.  For professionals or people with a great deal of lived experience, it will provide a set of slides, tools and approaches that may be helpful with clients or family members or may provide an easy way to train community members to be part of the solution.  Because the training is conversation-driven, professionals can often be particularly helpful to other participants during the training.
